the wonderful work of Sarah Charlesworth

These series by artist Sarah Charlesworth are based on newspaper. By blacking out certain parts of the original lay-out she leaves us with a different sort of "news" (is truth). The reconfigured works are show the essence of a medium and confront us with an aesthetic and editorial bias. It reminds me of the concrete poetry of Paul van Ostaijen, though I think his interest is more in the language itself en in the inherent eclectic beauty of the early newspapers.

Ain't this the dearest fox? The  attachment of the legs to the body is like fingers to a hand. And besides that the poor thing is either bashful or slightly ashamed of killing a wee chicken.
